I’m a bit of a health food nut, but Wine Wednesdays are also a regular part of my vocabulary. There’s nothing wrong with indulging in a little vino, but that means you MUST replenish your system with nutrients and anti-oxidants. So, when I was contacted a few weeks ago to try Molly & Sam’s new Hoboken Greens‘ company (and awesome delivery service)…while I was drinking a little vino, I knew I had to accept.
It’s quite an easy process:
- - You schedule a delivery date with Hoboken Greens.
- - Hoboken Greens delivers their green drink in the cutest mason jar.
- -You drink it and add to your fruits and veggies consumption!
- -That’s it.
Here’s what I got with my delivery – loves it:
How adorable, right?
About the company, according to Hoboken Greens:
We started making green drinks earlier in the summer after we learned about the amazing health benefits. Molly’s mom went through her second stint with cancer this past summer, and she began researching ways to change her diet to maximize her health. Her nutritionist introduced her to green drinks and the recipe was passed onto us.
We really believe that green drinks are a great way to stay healthy and boost the immune system. They have become an essential part of our morning routine (more so than coffee!) and we love spreading the word about them. We do use all organic produce that we purchase from Aspen Market. Orders can be placed online on our website (hobokengreens.com) and we offer a few payment options: one week for $14/48 oz serving, 2 weeks for $13/48 oz serving, and one month for $12/48 oz serving. Deliveries are made every Sunday.
48 oz. of green drink a week will provide six 8 oz. servings. This will provide roughly 2-3 servings of fruits and vegetables in just one drink. This is a perfectly healthy amount, but some people may wish to consume even more green drink to complete their daily serving allotment (the general recommendation is 5 servings of fruits & veggies a day).For drop off, we will let the person know the window of time we will be coming by. We like for them to be home so they can come down and pick up their drink. We either ring the bell or send an e-mail immediately after delivery. At this time, deliveries are every Sunday between 5:00 and 8:00 PM. We’ve had a few cases where our customers aren’t home during the delivery window, and we are more than happy to accommodate them and come at a different time on Sunday. We are hoping to add an additional delivery day during the week.
So, how was my green drink? In a word: delish!
If you’re like me, you absolutely love drinking smoothies, but hate the work that goes into buying ingredients (and the clean-up involved in the blending). I think Hoboken Greens is a novel way to consume your fruits and veggies in an easy way! And, I just love re-using my mason jar. I’m thinking of putting some flowers in it on my kitchen table!
If you’re still not convinced, here are some of the other things green drinks can do:
1. Improve your digestive system
2. Give you more energy throughout the day
3. Help to fight off sickness
4. Improve sleep
5. Rid your body of toxins
6. Improve your complexion
7. Provide you with essential vitamins, nutrients, and minerals
8. Suppress unhealthy food cravings by curbing your appetite
